We were lucky to have a chance to visit my brother and his son on a recent trip to Burnaby. A meal was part of the experience, and we chose Burnaby Palace for its location and menu. We arrived well before the dinner hour and were seated promptly. Our server was helpful to tell us about gluten free options. Our... More

Great little joint for classic Chinese fare. A large variety of food from all the regions in China. Incredible eggplant hotpot and the Kung pao chicken will knock you off your seat.

This restaurant boasts the best Canadian style Chinese food. I am not sure what Canadian style is but the food is OK. The service when we went was pleasant and quick. The restaurant itself was a little dingy with a heavy odor of unpleasant spices. The pepper was not straight pepper but was mixed with those unpleasant spices that smell... More

My sister said lets go for Chinese dinner. She chose Burnaby Palace on Boundary road. She had been many times, I have also been told it is good. It was very busy. Food was very good, but for some reason food came out one dish at a time and almost 30 minute between dishes. we were there for about 2.5... More

Great selection of dishes - both authentic Cantonese dishes and western favorites. The lemon chicken is the best in the city. The service is friendly and efficient.

I was very reluctant to give this place 2 stars because we are their long time customers and food is good (except when they change the cook I suppose when main cook is on vacation). We love their food and order delivery often. However we were passing by yesterday and dropped in for lunch. Oh boy, what an awful surprise.... More

I would have never guessed that a Chinese restaurant in this neighborhood would be offering the calibre of Cantonese that it does. It requires advance notice and the price is about $50 but duck stuffed with sticky rice is a dish that I haven't seen since I was knee high to a grasshopper. The premises are very inviting, housekeeping good,... More

This is always a go-to when visiting Vancouver. The staff is so relaxed, the food is incredible and the portion sizes are huge. Always take away more than we eat.

I have been going to Burnaby Palace for over 10 years - it is always my choice for Chinese. The food it excellent, always hot and service is good. They remember us when we go - we have been with small and large groups and it doesn't matter - food is always delicious. I love that it is a higher... More

So give of us went. We were given a nice private area for dining and a large table. the service was quite attentive and the place was generally clean. But the food was definitely not up to the standard; many of the plates had some funny spices not normally used in Chinese cooking and the noodles had only noodles and... More
